What I want to say is:
- locking 2 additional cores in Thuban - will it gives more stability in overclocking process?
- is it really so simple (I haven't tried it so far) - is this this Core Control option in Bios ? and if I was (theoretically speaking) succesful with that can I revert it back without problems (unlocking those 2 cores locked previously) ?
Last but not least
Is it true that Thubans have upgraded (more stable) IMC?
It may not give more stability although you may find that one core may OC better then another you could then disable that core.
The core control is in Bios all you would have to do is lock down cores 4 and 5.
Unlocking cores that you have locked is as easy as going into bios and undoing what you did to lock them.
YES thurbans have much better IMC's. Running 2000Mhz on the ram on 890 boards is almost a given.
